Background

With the magnificence of the Himalayas and the ecstatic beauty of natural hills, forests, and mountains, the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek offers one of the best trekking experiences in Nepal. It is one of the most popular trekking routes which explores the trails south of the Annapurna massif. The panoramic sunrise view of the Annapurna Range along with Mt. Machhapuchhre (6997m) and Lamjung Himal (6983m) from Poon Hill is the major attraction on the trek. Similarly, the Gurung culture, tradition, and lifestyle in Ghandruk and Ghorepani also offer an interesting change of pace on the trek. 

The 9-day Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek starts with your arrival in Kathmandu, Nepal. From Kathmandu, you drive to Pokhara and then Nayapul. The trek starts from Nayapul and you reach Ghorepani passing Ulleri and other villages on the way. The route to Ghorepani takes you through the biggest rhododendron forest in Nepal with the Annapurna Range as a constant companion. The next morning, you hike to Poonhill for the sunrise view over Annapurna I (8091m), Machhapuchhre (6997m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Lamjung Himal (6893m) and Hiunchuli (6441m) mountains. The same day, you head to Ghandruk, a beautiful Gurung village. Ghandruk offers great close up view of Annapurna I (8091m) and Machhapuchhre (6997m). Moreover, this village is famous for authentic Gurung lifestyle and cultural practices along with unique homestay services. Leaving Ghandruk, you trek down to Nayapul and then drive back to Kathmandu via Pokhara. The alluring attractions of this trek beside the mountains are the feel of the local and cultural experience of the Gurung and Magar settlements, the rhododendron forest, and wild flora and fauna in the Annapurna Conservation Area. The most ideal time for this trek is from September to November during autumn and March to May during spring. 

If you are looking at planning for this trek, we, at Miteri Nepal, offer you and your companion package deals at reasonable rates. Additionally, we also provide you the best accommodation facilities, meals, and friendly guides to have a memorable and a safe trekking experience!
